There is a plot of land that is 16 square acres, arranged in a 4 X 4 grid. There are 16 mammals, two each of the following: beaver, cat, dog, goat, horse, lion, tiger, and walrus. There is one mammal in each acre. The acres are labeled A through P, as shown below.


Given the following clues, determine where each mammal is located. The terms "next to" and "connected together" mean vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.

1) A and D do not contain the same mammal, but one of them has a dog.
2) E and O do not contain the same mammal, but one of them has a horse.
3) B and L contain the same mammal, but not a tiger.
4) C and M contain the same mammal, but not a beaver.
5) F, K, N, and P are four different mammals.
6) The tigers are in different columns.
7) The goats are located in two of the following locations: B, C, K, and O.
8) The lions are located in two of the following locations: A, E, F, and M.
9) Cats don't get along with dogs, so neither cat is next to a dog.
10) Tigers have goats on their menu, so each tiger must be next to at least one goat and each goat must be next to at least one tiger.
11) The beavers and walruses live on the same body of water, so all four must be connected together in some fashion.

That was tough, but oh so fun!

I did find Clue #9 confusing though: If a dog can't be next to A cat does that include Tigers and Lions? Or just house cats? I assumed it meant only house cats and was correct, but I wish it had been more clear since tigers and lions are in the cat family. I'd have liked the cat to be called a house cat or have just one type of feline in the puzzle. (Or perhaps the clue could have had "does not include tigers and lions"?)

Anyway, like I said, I gave this top rating for fun!
